Video has become an important feature on Twitter, with occasional users and major brands regularly downloading clips. Watching and sharing videos on Twitter is quite easy, but storing them on your computer, smartphone or tablet is impossible on the platform, forcing users to find alternative methods to download their favorite Twitter clips.
It’s easy to download videos from Twitter, as long as you have the right tools at hand, whether you’re on a desk, phone or tablet.
When you see an online image you want to save, it’s quite simple – all you have to do is right-click and you’re ready to go. This technique also works on Twitter (although things are a little more complicated with multiple image messages), but you will need to take a different approach when it comes to saving videos.
There are many reasons why you should download videos from Twitter, and how you proceed depends a lot on how you use the desktop or the mobile version of the service.
If you are a desktop Twitter user (i.e. someone who accesses the site with a web browser running Windows, MacOS or Linux), there are several online tools that can be used to download Twitter videos.
Using a third-party application to download Twitter videos
Whenever you find a video or gif funny and interesting, you can download and install a third-party Twitter video downloader to store it on your devices. For Windows or Mac users, you can try Gihosoft TubeGet, a video downloader designed for you to record videos from YouTube and of course Twitter. In addition to Twitter, you can also download Facebook videos. To record Facebook videos, you can refer to this article: Download and save Facebook videos. Now let’s get back to the subject and look at the step-by-step instructions on how to record Twitter videos with Gihosoft TubeGet on Windows & Mac computers.
- Select the arrow next to the tweet and choose Copy link to tweet. If you are already watching the tweet with the video, you can copy the URL displayed in the navigation bar of your browser.
- Paste the URL into the SaveTweetVid text box and click Download.
- Select one of the download options. You should see download links for different video qualities.
- The download of the Twitter video should start automatically, but if it doesn’t, right-click on the page and select the save option. Or, if you see a menu at the bottom right, select it, then select
- Download. You may also be lucky to use the Ctrl+S key combination.
Download the Twitter video with Readle documents
Basically, the Documents by Readle application has a built-in browser that downloads or saves the URL of the video you have entered, while Chrome or Safari browsers only read the video and do not allow you to download/save it. The browser acts as a video download application for you and allows you to record any video for which you have entered the URL.
